This property is no longer available to rent or to buy. This description is from February 24, 2022
Move right into this 4 bedroom/2bath certified Historic Bungalow in the heart of Portage Park. The home faithfully combines the best of its historic elements with modern updates. The current owners have lovingly restored much of this home to its original glory including it's original woodwork featuring quarter sawn oak crown moldings and removable 1915 mantel in the living room. The kitchen marries the best of old and new with solid oak custom cabinetry by Hummingbird, custom soapstone counters and sink, subway tile backsplash and pantry. The separate dining room can easily accommodate large gatherings. The recently remodeled back porch is perfect for a breakfast room with salvaged schoolhouse sink with a lab-style faucet running filtered water. 2 bedrooms and a full bathroom with a walk in shower complete this main floor living area. The basement has a ton of usable space, from a large living/recreation area with a wine/beer cellar, to two bedrooms, a full bathroom, laundry/utility room and a summer kitchen, equipped with gas and water hookups. The tall, full length insulated attic is ready to be transformed into a living space. New boiler (2015), updated copper water lines and new electrical wiring, including a new breaker, are just some of the upgrades that will bring you peace of mind for years to come! An outdoor patio with gas hookup is perfect for outdoor entertaining. The area is buzzing with activity from beautiful Portage Park (38 acres) nearby with indoor and outdoor pools, the popular corner coffee shop, gym, and restaurants just steps away. Close to 6-corners with the $ 400 Million Investment project is sure to make this area even more vibrant in the future.
